40 TeamQEH staff members have taken part in a skydive to raise valuable funds to go towards the building of the Maternity Bereavement Suit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Katie Taylor from communications at the QE has her feet firmly on the ground!
The skydive was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and then again due to high winds. Over the last few weeks, those that hadn’t made their jump have done so with final willing participants falling from the sky today.
So far £14.385 of their £20,000 target has been achieved and if you like to help them some more please click here.
The idea of the Bereavement Suite is to provide a dedicated and welcoming place for families from our community who sadly lose their babies either during, or shortly after birth, and give them the opportunity to create precious memories.
Having a purpose-built facility will make such a positive difference to the experience of the hospital’s patients who are going through their most difficult time after their loss. This development will help those families to spend time with their babies in a more homely environment away from the maternity suite.
Money received from this fundraising page will go to the Maternity Bereavement Suite after costs of the skydive have been deducted..
The total needed by the hospital for the project is £185,000 so this jump has really helped toward that goal.
